AOC Allied Group Wants To Censor The Opposition
It seems the Freedom of speech is only favored by Dems when it is convenient. A climate control group called "The Climate Mobilization" is aiming to silence climate change deniers. They feel that the media needs to stop being so objective. The Climate Mobilization group is allied with Dem Presidential Candidate Bernie Sanders and Rep Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
"Some media outlets are sacrificing the future of our planet for the sake of appearing objective," Margaret Klein Salamon, founder and executive director of The Climate Mobilization, said in a news release Saturday.
"This idea of equating climate deniers with scientific experts is a dangerous practice which frames the threat to our planet, our existence as an ongoing debate," Klein Salamon added. "I don’t think sacrificing the future of our planet in exchange for a look of 'objectivity' is an even exchange. It’s one the coming generation will judge us on, if we don’t move with the urgency necessary to fight back against global warming and win."
In other words, climate alarmists aren't just calling for radical changes to America to stave off some hypothetical climate disaster — they're also calling for opposing voices to be silenced. "Science" can only have one voice, and that voice must be Chicken Little.
The Climate Mobilization seized on a Newsweek article about a study from Nature Communications. The study's authors claimed that the U.S. news media gives "climate change deniers too much prominence by placing people with little understanding of the complexities involved in the same league as top scientists."
"It's time to stop giving these people visibility, which can be easily spun into false authority," University of California Merced Professor Alex Petersen said in a statement. Petersen and his team traced the digital footprints of voices for and against climate alarmism across 100,000 media articles. They found that about half of mainstream outlets seek out "climate-denying" experts.
So we are just supposed to start censoring all opinions that don't line up with progressive views. Is this 1984 are we going to erase the past too? I guess we have started to by removing statues depicting civil war era figures. This stance makes you doubt their position even more though. If you have facts and can prove your point, then why do you need to silence the opposition?
